Smooth crossing to Belfast and back

Visited Belfast whilst staying in Stranraer to go to the Titanic Exhibition. We got a good deal as foot passengers. The ship was very quiet. Left and arrived on time.

Easy and comfortable trip. The restaurant food was good, tasty, and the facilities were clean. Nice to be able to choose to be under cover or outside

Fabulous crossing, I struggle with stairs because of arthritis so we were delighted that there were lifts and I wasn't trapped on the first passenger deck I could reach. The ships have just about everything you could want. Plenty for children but also quieter areas for us older folks. There are a choice of catering outlets to suit pockets and... More

What a fabulous service and awesome value. We paid £10 per person as foot passengers from Cairnryan (only £5 to park on site all day too) leaving at 7.30am and returning on the 7.30pm from Belfast. Ticket price even included Belfast City buss pass. Ferry was very comfortable and the meal deals were great value at £26 for 2 adult... More

The ferry crossing from Cairnryan to Belfast is pleasant. It is worthy paying extra for the Lounge and for early boarding

I have travelled on this ship 8 times now and each time I have been very pleased with it, the facilities on-board are excellent, there is a shop, restaurant, arcade, children's playroom, cinema and much more. The shop can be rather expensive, on shore some of the items would be much cheaper. The restaurant is nice, food is great, very... More

Crossed from Scotland to Northern Ireland as part of a tour group. Excellent crossing lasting about 2 hours. Tour director got our bus door positioned right at the blue stairwell for quick access to the upper decks. Since we rode during lunch, we had to choose between lunch and seating. We chose lunch which means all the other seating was... More

Sailed on the Superfast on the 1130 sailing from Lock Ryan to Belfast, it was a really smooth sailing, she departed on time and arrived on time, the prices are a bit pricey, but this is to be expected on a ferry. The seats on deck 8, are very comfortable, and the access to the sun decks were easy to... More
